Saturday night, 11:38 p.m.

Dr. Grumpy: "This is Dr. Grumpy, returning a page."

Miss Hedayk: "Yeah, I see you for migraines, that I, uh, only get during sex..."

Dr. Grumpy: "Yes?"

Miss Hedayk: "Well, I'm over at the Meat Hook bar, and met this really hot guy, and I'm um, out of my migraine pills, and, uh, could you call some into the pharmacy, so I can pick them up on the way to his place?"

So did you hook her up or leave her hanging?

Be prepared!

I don't know, I think I might have taken pity on her and called in the prescription!

Grumpy, M.D. said...

Yes, I did call it in.

Did you hook her up?

Packer said...

I wonder if Mr. Lucky Guy knows that he should be thanking Dr. Grumpy

Ami said...

I get migraines. Never thought about a possible correlation...

Oh. And Meathook Bar?

::snork::

Did you also call her in some antibiotics for the STD she was going to get as well?

Anonymous said...

won't it be easier if you prescribe her the custom-made anti-migraine magnetic gloves?

Grumpy, M.D. said...

I don't want to do that. What if she gives him a hand job and then he can only point north?

Brian Thompson said...

Now that's what I call inductive reasoning!

Dr Grumpy, your response to the magnetic glove comment was great: good laugh.

I like the way you conducted yourself...very inductive reasoning..

Literal LOL on the magnetic gloves.

Google says there's a Meat Hook Steakhouse in Oregon. I doubt it's the same thing, though.

Wow, that call took balls! LOL!

Well, that call/request took some "balls!" I suppose there's something to be said about making sure she was prepared (mental checklist: condoms, migraine medication, cab money, neurologist's office number.......)!

In all seriousness, is that a "common" trigger for a migraine sufferer?

Hope you had a nice Father's Day!

If my brain ever explodes, I want you to be my doctor.

I second that.

I would have told her to never to call me again after office hours and to stop being a slut. And I would have mailed her an STD info sheet via express mail the next morning. (along with a referral to the nearest clinic.

I do love a story with a happy ending

Re the "magnetic gloves": It would be especially embarrassing if he was a West Pointer.

I'm with anonymous at 6.26. I HATE this whole attitude of "the world revolves around ME darling ME!"

I echo the question above - is that a common migraine trigger?
Anon 6:26, sex is a perfectly normal activity. What amazes me is Dr Grumpy returning a page at 11:38 pm on a Saturday night. That is a dedicated doctor.

Anon @ 6:26, who are you to judge? I thought that was pretty gutsy of her to make the phone call, and at least she's trying to look after her health...sounds like she's the sort of person who's likely to use protection with casual sex. Just wondering, if the patient was male would you have still posted your 'slut' comment?

@ anon 6:26

His job is to treat his patients, not pass judgement on their lifestyles. Go hop back on your high horse and get out of here.

Wow. I hope the guy was amazing, because all I can think is, 48-hour excruciating headache for a night of sex? Not a trade I'd make. But if the medication works, it makes more sense.

bobbie said...

Dr. G ~ now I have to clean my computer screen ~ you made me spit coffee all over it with your "point north" response!
Thanks for the big belly laugh!

for the record

- migraine can either be provoked, or relieved, by orgasm, in some individuals.

"not tonight dear" has basis in fact, if you are in the former camp. Just be grateful if you, or your significant other, is in the latr...

Ms. Donna said...

LOL LOL LOL And I agree with calling the Rx in. Now, if he want to discuss STD and etc. during a regular visit, that is up to him.

Who know the Pt. may marry this one.

Andie said...

Nice of you to call it in.

Alison said...

Wow, I second the question to Anon about being sexist. I bet a guy in this situation would get a "way to go, dude!" from Anon, but somehow a woman is a "slut". I'm actually a proponent of chastity until marriage for myself personally, but I'd never presume to judge someone else for their different choices. I'm sick of the double standards for men and women!

BTW, Dr. Grumpy, you're awesome for calling that in. I wish you were my neurologist. She has no sense of humor (resembles a Catholic nun teaching high school but stricter and less fun).

I thought coitus relieved migraine headaches for woman?
